Not JUCE related, but the first time I came across it is in the JUCE framework and I know Jules etc. are big on doing things the proper way, so curious to know the musings/advice from the JUCErs here.
I’m really incompetent at programming, in fact, mid way through crunching Bruce Eckel’s ‘Thinking in C++’ I decided to go through another book (Teach yourself C++ in one hour a day) before I could even finish the first volume of Thinking. This is how amateur I am.
Anyway, for dumb dumbs like me, the auto type specifier seems to be more pain than it’s worth, unless I’m missing something? I like knowing easily what type something is, so what is the benefit to using it, and why is it used so often in JUCE?
